Tell Me Why 02:18
TELL ME WHY Tell me why All the days go by And we never learn We just burn and burn Tell me why You always cry And love still stings We never learned a thing Oh, no I know that I should leave us behind But I’m too weak to say goodbye And the words that you said to me Still ring in my ear In my heart It’s the part that’s so hard to hear Yeah It’s so hard to hear It’s so hard to hear Lessons learned The heart still burns All the things we did Won’t say goodbye Just get high Like we’re lovestruck kids 3, 4, 1, 2 Tell me why Tell me why

SAY HELLO WAVE GOODBYE Say hello wave goodbye Will you remember tomorrow night Meet by the well where the camels lie And IEDs light up the sky Yeah, IEDs light up the sky Don’t make a sound You’ll be heard Don’t be afraid Don’t be lured Let other pass Take your time Or you’ll get dealt the sword surprise Yeah, you’ll get dealt the sword surprise Say hello wave goodbye I’d do anything just to survive So long old friend You’re all I ever needed til the end Keep your cover Make your way Behind the mosque stop and pray For your soul the lord to keep You’re in too far you’re in too deep Yeah, you’re in too far you’re in too deep Leave a letter on the tray For your ma in the USA Who do you know Who can you trust Everything just turns to dust Two more days til the end Will luck hold out or just run thin, yeah Will it run out or just run thin Say hello wave goodbye I’d do anything just to survive So long old friend You’re all I ever needed til the end So long old friend You’re all I ever needed til the end

MISTAKE TO MAKE Mistake to make Tantrums and fits Fit for a queen A queen’s bitch Mistake to make We’re at the end We’re past the week And the weekend Mistake to make Mistake to make Just who are you How did we ever Become two Mistake to make So full of grace So full of lies You just can’t keep straight Mistake to make Can you hear me when I call Will you catch me when I fall I don’t think so Cos you nearly made me crawl Now I don’t feel nothing at all I won’t see you in the end We can no longer pretend Mistake to make I’ve always said that your heart of glass Will make sure our love won’t last Beyond the break of day No way Mistake to make Tantrums and fits Fit for a queen A queen’s bitch Mistake to make We’re at the end We’re past the week And the weekend Mistake to make Mistake to make Can you hear me when I call Will you catch me when I fall I don’t think so Cos you nearly made me crawl Now I don’t feel nothing at all I won’t see you in the end We can no longer pretend Mistake to make Mistake to make

ME AND THE BEAN (Written by John Clayton) There's a girl in my yard Reading to me tarot cards She don't know anything But she's beautiful to me My eyes are opening again I see you as you're marching in I'll bring you cover when you're cold You'll bring me youth when I grow old Do you remember when you were small How everybody seemed so tall I am your shadow in the dark I have your blood inside my heart

REVIEWS:

This is a sweet and simple confection that punches above its short minute count on the strength of its songwriting, production and musicality. Opening with ‘Tell Me Why’, you could be fooled into thinking you’re getting a Neil Young cover, instead of which there’s a McCartneyesque ditty complete with whistling and some gorgeous harmonies and choruses.

Sweet! Second track ‘Say Hello Wave Goodbye’ again isn’t a cover of a better-known track and again is no disappointment. A muscular acoustic track with subtle arrangement and simple lyricism. All acoustic but finely balanced as the vocals sit on the hint of accordion. ‘Mistake to Make’ again sounds like a lot of Beatles has been listened to in the songwriting process: there’s ‘Taxman’ here as well as ‘Daytripper’. It’s a little less polished than the previous tracks but still cuts a fair swathe through most of the things that pass across this desk.

‘Me and the Bean’ is the final track on the EP and hints at a catalogue that will grow. This is different and feels like a progression. Gently strummed guitar, jazzy inflexions. Is that a cello? Harmonies float in and out. This is far more thoughtful and original, leaving the listener wanting to hear more as the steel guitar wafts him away on a dream. Lovely.
